Sonam, dad Anil Kapoor grace 'Koffee With Karan'
Karan Johar’s celebrity chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ saw Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor with her very ‘young’ father Anil Kapoor on its latest episode on Sunday, March 30. Earlier, Karan had reportedly shared a picture of Sonam and Anil on micro-blogging site Twitter and had written, “The Fashionista and the Forever young on the Koffee Couch!!
Incidentally, Anil who claimed to be nervous began at the talk show by saying, “…pata nai kya bolne wali hain” and pointed at Sonam!
The ‘Bewakoofiyaan’ star, who is generally quite confident, goofed up during the last part of the chat show which is the general knowledge round.
During the GK round, host Karan Johar asked the father-daughter duo, “Who said ‘An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind’?”
While Kapoor gave the correct answer (Mahatma Gandhi), Sonam answered, “Robert DeNiro”.
Reportedly Karan shockingly asked her, “What! How can you say Robert De Niro?” Sonam said, “I don’t know what this is? I don’t remember it.”
Her father, too, was shocked with Sonam’s answer and he, too, couldn’t stop laughing.
Karan apparently did not let the incident go without making fun of the actress. Although, Sonam was embarrassed initially, she took the jibe quite sportingly.
The incident reminded about the ‘2 States’ actress, Alia Bhatt, who goofed up during the GK round as well.
When Karan had asked who the President of India was, Sidharth Malhotra had replied Pranab Mukherjee, while Varun Dhawan said Manmohan Singh and Alia Bhatt had replied Prithviraj Chavan, who is the present Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Alia, after realizing the goof up, said, “Sorry, I got confused both their names start with P.”
It was quite interesting to see Arjun Kapoor share a few secrets about his cousin Sonam and uncle Anil at the show and reportedly dared Sonam to attend an awards ceremony in denims and tee.
According to reports, Sonam said in an interview that her father, actor Anil Kapoor, was proud of her achievements but that he wants her to do better .
Sonam was quoted in the media as saying, “He thinks I need to work harder and do better work. He is proud of me, but he keeps telling me to focus and work hard and not to space out in between (take break) as this is the time to work out. I am trying to do that.”
